Volcanoes in the Philippines: Mapping natural catastrophe crisk zones

This month's map from GfK GeoMarketing features a postcode map of the Philippines that also shows the country's many active volcanoes. Postcode maps are the basis of the CRESTA Zones used in the reinsurance industry. CRESTA Zones are cartographic units that allow companies active in risk management to assess regional "nat cat risks", calculate cumulated risks in relevant areas, adapt their insurance policies accordingly and adequately report actual risks. GfK GeoMarketing is the official provider of the CRESTA Zones and also produces worldwide digital postcode maps in all standard map formats for GIS, BI and ERP applications (map source and illustration copyright: GfK GeoMarketing).
